This school was established in 1963. Over the years it has developed and flourished to provide ‘Outstanding Education’ (Ofsted, 2007, 2010, 2014 and 2018). The school population has increased over the 7 years and now provides education for 146 children with Severe and Complex Learning Difficulties. All the children who attend the school have an ‘Education and Health Care Plan’ and are under the responsibility of Hertfordshire Education Authority. The vast majority (141/146) of the children live in the local area of East Hertfordshire.

Teachers and support staff are well qualified and in the forefront of curriculum delivery for Children with Special Educational Needs in Hertfordshire.  Specialist teachers of Music, Science and P.E. make the school highly desirable as a Special School. All teachers work closely with specialist medical staff including Speech and Language Therapists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Paediatric nurses. The school also employs a music therapist whose expertise provides significant support to children and their parents in the exploration of communication and emotional development in a safe, protective environment.



Amwell View School & Specialist Sports College was established in 1963. Over the years it has developed and flourished to provide ‘Outstanding Education’ (Ofsted, 2007, 2010 and 2014) for 146 children with Severe Learning Difficulties.

Our aim for the future is to build a first class facility in the form of a sensory room will be designed with specific and specialist resources to motivate and facilitate the use of vision and hearing in very damaged children. This interactive environment will greatly enhance the opportunity for these particular children to access learning and improve their likelihood of achieving and enjoying their educational experience.

For many of the children their greatest joy is experienced in school where they are able to have access to specialist resources, such as the hydrotherapy pool, with specialist staff.
